    Warmth without the weight.

    Sometimes it seems like when winter hits we either have the option of lightweight coverage with freedom of movement but minimal warmth, or bulky layers that keep us toasty, but swap our range of motion to that not-unlike a certain anthropomorphic man made of dough. While the image of chubby dough-men may make us laugh, it's not an ideal cycling situation, which is why Castelli offers us the Sorpasso 2 tights for women. Light weight enough that we still feel nimble and enjoy a large range of motion, but with tech-packed fabrics that pack a punch against Jack Frost, we once again are happy to hit the roads through slush and ice with the help of a kit from Castelli.

    Much like the Sorpasso of years past, the new Sorpasso 2 tights begin construction with strategically placed panels of Thermoflex Core2, and traditional Thermoflex fabrics. They both offer their own benefits, Thermoflex Core2 is compressive, warm, and insulating, with a nylon shell housing a hollow weave polyester base that traps heat within its fibers, and naturally pulls moisture away from the body to keep you from getting bogged down. Traditional Thermoflex counters this with a gently-stretching, fleecy fabric that feels soft against the skin and allows for the stretch needed for maximum comfort in the saddle. Just as in the older Sorpasso, this continues to provide support on your muscles where needed, and soft warmth with a stretch where you want it.

    A Progetto X2 Air women's specific chamois backs up the burly external construction with a women's specific fit to support your sensitive skin and sit bones for long distance rides. The Progetto X2 Air is the same used before in the Sorpasso, and offers multi-density foam to cushion your seat for hours, 4-way stretch seamless fabric against your skin, and perforations in the foam to aid in moisture transfer, preventing moisture from down under ruining your ride.

    You may at this point be wondering what sets apart the Sorpasso 2 from the older Sorpasso models. The Sorpasso 2 puts emphasis on more rider support with a lumbar located band that gently stretches around your lower back to offer a bit of relief. This not only improves the fit, but also long term comfort by applying pressure where needed to relieve strain on your muscles.

    Like the older models, these bibs again see YKK Camlock ankle zippers for easy on and off, and large strips of reflective tape hit the calves to help with your visibility when riding in low light situations.

    Best Tight* *that's not a bib

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    The Sorpasso 2 Tight has become an even more versatile tight than I had hoped for. The tight is a great option for rides between about 50* and 30*, any colder than that and you'll be rather chilled!

    I tested these out for the first time on a 45*, pretty windy, day here in Utah. Whether on the way up a climb or cruising down the rail trail for the last miles home in the dark (wooops), the Sorpasso 2 tight somehow had me at the right temperature. It felt a bit like the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants thing--except instead of fitting 4 bodies, these tights fit every temperature (within reason).

    The stretch of the tight is pretty perfect: allowing for a great range of motion without getting sloppy. The one weird thing: the red fleece on the interior gives an odd sheen to the fabric when stretched. I really appreciate the thinner fabric used in at the back of the waistband--heat vents well, and it makes for a nice silhouette.

    I like to pair these tights with the Trasparente Jersey, for those 40*ish days of fall and spring.

    Sizing is true for Castelli--may need to size up. I usually wear a medium in most brands' bibs and tights (29

    So versatile!

    The Sorpasso are an excellent winter tight with the ability to be worn in a myriad of temperatures. I have worn them down to windy, 25 degrees and up to sunny, 55 degree days. The fleece lined tight will keep you warm and comfortable on the chilly rides when you have to pull yourself from a warm house. The Thermoflex fleece stops at the same point that the zipper starts. Great, snug fit with a high waist that keeps the band from digging into your stomach. The Progetto X2 Air chamois is the same high-end chamois found in the Free Aero Race bibs. If you are looking for one pair of comfortable tights to spend most of your cool fall, winter, and spring rides in, the Sorpasso 2 is for you.
